With the advent of Trumpism, white nationalists and supremacists have felt more emboldened than ever. Since the election, many of the racist groups forming the so-called “alt right” have actively and consciously tried to organize in real space, taking their slogans and hate from the dark corners of the internet to real life.

Sometimes, that ends in violence, such as in Charlottesville. In fact, white nationalists are one of the most violent groups in the United States. In a video that’s starting to go viral, over a dozen white nationalists viciously assault an interracial couple. The woman in the video, who is white, comes away battered and bloodied.

The neo-nazis were coming fresh off a “white lives matter” rally in Tennessee, where they were greatly outnumbered by counter protesters, according to Al Jazeera:

A rally staged by a coalition of neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups in Tennessee on Saturday met counterprotests and a large police presence.

The Nationalist Front, the coalition, held Saturday’s protest, which included the participation of the neo-fascist Traditionalist Worker Party (TWP), the National Socialist Movement (NSM), the neo-Confederate League of the South and other white supremacist groups.

Matthew Heimbach of the Traditional Workers Party is also clearly visible in the video documenting the assault on the interracial couple:

Here’s the video of neo-Nazis assaulting them outside of a bar:

Unsurprisingly, despite assaulting a couple with a large group of people, Heimbach attempts to pin all blame on the black guy:

“De-escalation” doesn’t involve beating a woman bloody. “Not wanting conflict” doesn’t include walking around in Nazi gear, looking for a fight. “Assaulting someone for their political views” is a weird, self-victimizing claim to make when you are part of an ideology that advocates racial cleansing and creating a “white ethnostate.” And the fact the Nazis fled before the cops showed up to file a report says a lot, too.

Here are some of the responses on social media, which point out contradictions in Heimbach’s story, as well as highlight important context:
